Stefan Bradl has been racing for the LCR Honda team since his MotoGP debut in 2012. But with his contract expiring at the end of the season and Cal Crutchlow’s recent signing with LCR, it looked like the former Moto2 champ was out of a ride.
However, the impending retirement of Colin Edwards is opening up a vacancy at NGM Forward Racing next season. Bradl is being brought in to fill the spot, the team announcing a one-year deal for 2015 on Wednesday.
“It’s with great pleasure that we welcome Stefan Bradl to our team,” said Giovanni Cuzari, team owner of NGM Forward Racing. “We believe Stefan is a strong rider, that our package will suit his riding style very well and we look forward to start this new cooperation.”
